In 1945, while still a student at Kyoto University, Masao Horiba, the current Supreme Counsel of HORIBA, set up the HORIBA Radio Laboratory in Karasuma-Gojo in Kyoto in order to continue nuclear physics research interrupted by Japan’s defeat in the war. The HORIBA Radio Laboratory built the capacitor needed for the high-speed calculator (computer in today’s terms) for nuclear physics experiments. This capacitor became renowned for its functions and quality, and HORIBA decided to start manufacturing it commercially.

However, construction of the factory was halted by the steep rise in the cost of materials due to the conflict in Korea. The only thing to be done was to market the pH meter they had built to control the pH value of the capacitor’s electrolyte. This pH meter was extremely well-received and before he knew it HORIBA was famous as a maker of pH meters.

In 1953, eight years after the formation of the HORIBA Radio Laboratory, HORIBA, Ltd. was established and took its first steps as a manufacturer of measurement instruments.


HORIBA - Model OCMA-300 - Oil Content Analyzer

The OCMA-300 is an automated portable unit for monitoring oil content in both fresh water and saltwater. The one-touch monitoring process is fully automated, from sample extraction to analysis and sample expulsion. The OCMA-300 utilizes an S-316 extraction solvent to ensure superior oil particle stability and infrared absorptiometry for sample analysis. Using 0mg/l -200mg/l dynamic ranging, the unit is capable of analyzing both high and low ...

HORIBA - Model Synapse-i scientific CCD - Low Light Imaging Cameras

The Synapse-i scientific CCD camera is the most sensitive quantitative low light imaging camera on the market. The Synapse-i imaging camera provides real image quantification for direct correlation between the image intensity and the detected number of photons. The importance of the quantitative nature of the Synapse-i imaging camera cannot be overstated especially for imaging of labeled cells, plants and in-vivo imaging. Thanks to its unique ...


Environmental radiation monitoring

Every day, wherever we go, we are exposed to minute amounts of environmental radiation.* This environmental radiation is emitted continuously, day and night, from various objects and substances in the natural world and our living environment.

Most environmental radiation consists of three types: alpha rays (α), beta rays (β) and gamma rays (γ).  HORIBA`s PA-1000 `Radi`...


HORIBA - Version EDA-2000 - Emission Data Aquisition Software

EDA-2000 is an emission data acquisition software, which is based on a 32-bit application and is especially constructed for the operating systems Windows XP/Vista/7. The handling of the data is done via one or more serial ports of the computer. Up to 8 different analyzer or Datalogger can be handled simultaneous. For this, the PC has to be equipped with a special interface board.


The MultiWell module offers an easy interface for high throughput screening using traditional well plates, microtitre plates and other regularly arrayed sampling devices.
